Cleveland DB promises free jerseys if Cavs win

Cleveland Browns safety Damarious Randall’s Twitter boasts in support of the Golden State Warriors may just end up costing him millions.

Randall made a promise on Twitter on Monday that if LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers upset the Warriors in the NBA Finals he would buy a jersey for anyone who retweeted his post.

As of early afternoon on Wednesday, Randall’s tweet had been retweeted more than 760,000 times, becoming the most retweeted tweet of any NFL player ever.

Although Randall did not specify which jersey he would buy, the promise would easily cost him more than the $1,090,381 in base salary and $424,037 roster bonus he’s set to earn this season.

That’s because the absolute cheapest Cavs jerseys offered online in the NBA Store cost around $30, with prices climbing as high as $300 for more exclusive editions. Meanwhile, Browns jerseys at the NFL Shop average around $99, although jerseys of former Browns players can be had for as little as $40.

That would mean Randall’s promise would cost him at minimum $22.8 million to upwards of $76 million, unless he can get a deal buying in bulk.

While other Twitter users have cast doubt on whether the newly acquired defensive back will follow through, he tweeted back at one skeptic on Monday with the promise he would “100 percent” keep his promise.

Randall, who has been openly rooting for the Warriors throughout the playoffs, was traded to the Browns from the Green Bay Packers in March.

Some Cleveland fans have questioned the wisdom of a Browns player actively rooting against one of the city’s other pro teams, but Randall has also tweeted support for James as MVP and said he would have “gladly rooted” for the Cavs had the Houston Rockets beat the Warriors in the Western Conference finals.

With Game 1 of the NBA Finals set for Thursday night in Oakland, California, Randall has said he intends to be courtside when the series comes to Cleveland for Games 3 and 4 next week.
